I believe such is the state of human conscious evolution. There are no set dates, deadlines, or timelines that determine human events. The trajectory of humankind modifies as a result of conscious acts , fueled by passionate intent.
We all know the insecure state that we exist in now. Too many people are one paycheck, or illness, or pink slip, from destitution.
We all know that we are one disastrous weather event from homelessness. Environmental calamity is imminent anywhere, or everywhere, economic collapse is closer than anyone, including myself, is willing to admit. Racial conflict, hate mongers impiously spit venom, corporations own governments, and the people are voiceless, the rich and celebrities are worshiped like gods of the Greek pantheon.
On the surface, humanity looks to be in a sad state, teetering on the brink.
But bubbling up from the sub-conscious of collective humanity is a remembering. We are not barreling down rickety tracks on a run-away train, it just looks like that. Each one of us, personally, individually can contribute to slowing the train down enough to jump off. We're remembering that the engine is fueled by our consent, our co-operation...the more we blindly accept, co-operate against our own conscience, compassion, dignity, and our own best interests, the more the train is fueled and accelerates.
For the coming new year, I would like to offer three simple, yet transformative acts that will get into the collective consciousness of humanity. Acts that will switch the train to a sturdier track, away from the hairpin curves at harrowing speed.
Even small, personal, singular actions have a butterfly effect on the whole of human consciousness.
1.) Help someone this year coming, in a way that puts you out, in a way that takes you out of your comfort zone. I'm not talking about a family member or friend, that's too commonly easy. I mean help a complete stranger that could never return the favor. Don't go the extra mile, go the whole distance with them. Don't worry about finding the opportunity, that will present itself when you decide to do this; I assure you. You've been unconsciously walking or driving by the opportunity to do this all the time.
One of the major benefits of something like this is the re-emergence of trust.
2.) You'll be buying gifts this year. Birthdays, anniversaries, husband or wife 'just because' gifts. Find a local crafts-person or artist and buy something to gift from them. This takes money out of the corporate machine and puts it directly into the pocket of a real person.
Make a concerted effort to donate whenever possible to your favorite blogger, or someone working diligently to raise the consciousness of humanity. Not someone espousing a political cause or ideology, our solutions are past politics now. I mean someone simply doing the thankless job of helping humanity be reminded of it's better nature.
Your support of them (us) is invaluable.
On the left side of this page are some links to sites that would appreciate your reading, viewing and supporting if at all possible.
3.) Consciously let go of EVERYTHING that you think you know. That is the only way to learn something new, to see things in a new way. Nothing transformational ever happened with the same beliefs we always held. New things happen when we start thinking and seeing in new ways. So relax your grip on your knowledge, knowledge changes all the time, what was true one day will not be true on another day. Be intellectually fluid...use your gut feelings more, let your heart decide some things.
There is nothing wrong with 'logic', unless you use logic in a narrow, unyielding manner.
Walk around with these suggestions. If one, or all, sits comfortably with you, please act.
Talking about it time is over, the time of talk was necessary...now is the walking it out time.
Have a happy, passionate, unprecedented 2015.
Be the Love,
